G'day From Australia

Recommended Posts

G'day everyone.


I'm Dale from sunny Canberra, the capital city of Australia... no seriously, it is the capital... google it biggrin.gif


Canberra is conveniently located about 3 hours away from Eastern Creek near Sydney (a great track and the place I first touched knee to track surface) and about 8 hours from Phillip Island near Melbourne, over the last few years I've been visiting these tracks on a regular basis.


After crashing and breaking my 1975 CB250 at the age of 17, it took me another 12 years to get back on two wheels. Over the last 6 years I've had a variety of bikes and currently have a K5 GSXR 1000 (occasionally ridden on the road, spent more time on the track over the last 2 years), a Husqvarna SM570R (only ridden on track, shortly to be sold) and another Husqvarna TE450 chook chaser (only ridden in the bush). I did my first CSS at Phillip Island in October last year and since then the track day junkie bug has been on steriods. I'm now selling the motard to fund a small race bike (leaning toward a VFR400) so I can see how I fare in competition next year.


I've read through a twist of the wrist 1 and refer back to it regularly and am now reading through a twist of the wrist 2, these have been a great source of useful information that have really helped my consitency on the track - Thanks Keith!


Looking forward to reading/posting and generally checking stuff out on the forum.
